2023 Cadillac Escalade EV: Will there be an Electric Cadillac Escalade in 2023?

Will there be the 2023 Cadillac Escalade EV, you may ask? Well, just find your answer in the following article.

Will you purchase the 2023 Cadillac Escalade EV if there is one? Many people seem to be interested in purchasing an EV especially if the car comes from a prominent carmaker such as Cadillac. Unfortunately, in its 2023 version, you won’t see the EV Escalade from Cadillac. It seems like the carmaker hasn’t found the right time to introduce the EV series of full crossover like Escalade.

Will 2023 Cadillac Escalade EV Exist?

Fortunately, we can check the official website of Cadillac while searching for the lineup. You can even check the price there. Since the production of Escalade is said to be started in July 2022, it seems like the release of this lineup will be in early 2023.

While the details of the car can be accessed fully on the website, you may wonder if will there be the 2023 Cadillac Escalade EV. As said earlier, there won’t be any EV crossover car for the year’s production release. Cadillac may not be making the electric version of the Escalade this year, but that doesn’t mean the carmaker will not produce such a car with a full-electric powertrain in the future.

What Models are Available?

The Cadillac Escalade will come in two versions. First, it is called the Cadillac Escalade Premium Luxury and the second one is called as Cadillac Escalade V. While the Escalade V offers you its luxury, the Premium Luxury—despite its name, is considered the lower trim in the Escalade lineup.

Although the carmaker hasn’t explicitly said about the quality of Premium Luxury, the price says it all. The ­­price of Cadillac Escalade Premium Luxury is almost half the price of Escalade V; which is starting at $85,000 while the counterpart starts its price at $149,990.

The Release of the Cadillac Escalade

Now that you begin to feel the curiosity to know about the car’s specifications, you may also wonder when will the car be released, right?

According to sources, the carmaker is planning to start the manufacturing process of the Cadillac Escalade in July 2022. Expect it to be another wait for 6 months or a few more, then the car will be expected to release the car in January or February 2023 (early months, to be safe).

The Powertrains

Again, there is no claim from Cadillac regarding the making of the Escalade EV. The information you can obtain from the official website of Cadillac also mentions that the car won’t operate using an electric powertrain. Instead, the car is still using a fuel-powered engine.

So, what kind of engine will be used? The Escalade is said to use a 6.2-L, supercharged and intercooler V8 engine, but not supercharged for the Premium Luxury model.

The car is capable to produce around 420-682 HP with the engine. Such a powerful power makes this carmaker above other carmakers in the making of the crossover car alike. Not only the power production is exceptional, but the torque is also pretty outstanding. As stated on the official website, both cars will have 460 lb.-ft. and 653 lb.-ft. for Premium Luxury and Escalade V consecutively. Both cars are using the same type of drivetrain and transmission, which are the front-wheel drive and 10-speed automatic transmission.

Techy Crossover

If being spoiled with sophisticated technology is your dream, the 2023 Cadillac Escalade EV may not be the answer since there will be no EV Cadillac in 2023.

You can pick the 2023 Cadillac Escalade V instead. Not only you can get a spacious full-size crossover, but you can also get spoiled by the outstanding techs involved in the making of this car.

Comfortability, as well as the car’s high material seating, and updated techs, all, make purchasing the 2023 Cadillac Escalade—not the 2023 Cadillac Escalade EV—to be more beneficial for you.
